Here Are The 9 Most Dangerous Places In Vermont To Live In

Vermont has consistently been ranked the safest state in the nation, which is just one of the many reasons we love it here.  Some towns and cities have a higher instance of crime, and there are certainly more dangerous places in Vermont than others.  When looking at Area Vibes, Best Places, Roadsidesnacks, 247wallst and City-Data, it was interesting to see how small numbers could greatly affect the outcome of the calculations of these city and town crime rates.  Naturally, we would like to have zero crimes in every area, but this is Vermont, not Utopia.  However, when you see the pictures of these towns we think you’ll agree – every single one is beautiful.  From the architecture to the views, there’s simply no place like VT.

Please note:  Property crime includes the offenses of burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson.  Murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault are considered violent crimes.
